Vid of the Day: A hummingbird flying in slow-motion
Hummingbirds tend to be on the nervous side, but sitting in a garden surrounded by flowers and watching hummingbirds go after their beloved nectar can be a very relaxing activity. The camera helps to freeze — or, in this case, slow down — the scenes and make visible what the naked eye misses.
The flying skills of these hovering gems are topped only by their beauty.
The more than 50 species of hummingbirds that live in Costa Rica are spread all over the country, from mangrove forests to rain forests to cloud forests to 3,000-meter páramo landscapes.
The below video was taken at La Paz Waterfall Gardens.
